REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

Report to the Town Meeting concerning the proposed amendment to the 
Zoning By-Law adopted December 2, 1969, from the Planning Board of 
Cohasset, Massachusetts, as required and set forth in Chapter 40A, Section 6 
of the General Laws. 

On February 17, 1971, at 8:00 P.M. at the Cohasset High School 
Auditorium, a hearing was held by the Cohasset Planing Board on two 
proposed amendments to the Town's Zoning Code. Attendance was so small 
that town wide representation was very Hmited. 

The first amendment to be heard was Article 23 in the Town Warrant. "To 
see if the town will vote to amend the Zoning By-Law of the Town of 
Cohasset Adopted December 2, 1969, as heretofore amended by inserting a 
new section 1 B. Watershed Protection Zone after Section 1 A. Special Flood 
Plain and Watershed Protection Zone . . .." 

The object of the amendment as explained by Alan Murphy of the Water 
Department is to provide protection to major watershed areas of the town 
which act as recharge zones for the town's pubHc water supply. A map 
presented estabUshes a watershed protection zone which appeared to the 
Planning Board to be adequate although small. 

The Planning Board is in favor of this amendment and supports its 
objectives. We urge the town to adopt Article 23. 

Respectfully submitted, 
G. Scott Sleeves, Chairman 

Voted unanimously by a voice vote, that the Zoning By-Law of the Town 
of Cohasset adopted December 2, 1969, as heretofore amended, be and 
hereby is amended by inserting a new Section 1 B, and Watershed Protection 
Zone after Section 1 A, Special Flood Plain and Watershed Protection Zone as 
follows:

MOSQUITO CONTROL, TOWN OF COHASSET 

To the Citizens within the Project's control: 

Submitted herewith is the report of the South Shore Mosquito Control 
Project's activities for the year December 1, 1970 to November 30, 1971. 

The Project is a year round cooperative effort embracing the City of Quincy 
and Towns of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, 
Norwell, Scituate and Weymouth, covering a total area of 172 square miles, 
serving a population in excess of 230,000. 

The Project is authorized and acts under the provisions of Massachusetts 
General Laws, Chapter 252, Section 59, mosquito control provisions, and 
Chapter 1 12, Acts of 1931, pertaining to maintenance of ditches put on the salt 
marshes under original act. 

The Project continued to base its program on three recommended approaches 
to community mosquito control: 

A. Source Reduction, eliminating or reducing of water breeding sites of the 
mosquitoes 

B. Reduction at the Source, larvaciding at the water breeding sites whereby 
a very minimum amount of insecticide can effect the greatest amount of 
kill of mosquito larvae and pupae 

C. Reduction of Adults, by an atomized space and residual spray in an area 
usually between the nearest accessible site of suspected mosquito 
emergence and the area of a noted large mosquito buildup. 

Giving priority of operation in the order above. 

Source Reduction: 

All mosquitoes need a water source to breed. However, water alone does not 
constitute a mosquito condition. The requisites of stagnation, brackishness, 
pollution and level fluctuation are also necessary to some extent. Eliminate one, 
two, or all these conditions, termed "source reduction or water management" 
and mosquitoes would also be eliminated to the same degree. 

The project operates two crawler tractor backhoe trenchers especially adapted 
to work upon coastal salt marshes; this is where .the greater amount of its 
mosquito problems would be. 



62 



Along these lines of source reduction this project accomplished the following 
in this past year: 

18,400 cu. ft. new ditch excavated 

433,125 cu. ft. ditches reclaimed 

8,470 feet of brook and stream cleaning 

78,500 sq. ft. of brushing to faciHtate access to work and treat these breading 

areas. 
Reduction at the Source: 

Mosquitoes, while in their period of water development (larvae and pupae) are 
in their most vulnerable state for they are in large concentrations and restricted 
to small areas, thus allowing very minute amounts of insecticide to render the 
greatest level of mosquito fatality, the same time this Hmits to a great extent the 
harmful effects on other aquatic and marsh Hfe with such low dosages. 

Several methods are employed by the project to mosquito larvacide; aircraft, 
both helicopter and fixed wing making low volume application to the large 
woodland swamps, power sprayer, tanks, with hose, in areas accessible from the 
roads, back pack sprayers to the smaller inaccessible areas, also power sprayers 
mounted on Jeep model vehicles are used to treat roadside and storm drain 
catchbasins. 

All areas larvacided are either actually breeding mosquitoes at the time of 
apphcation or are known to be sure breeding areas at future dates. 

Accomplished by this project by reducing at the source in this past year, 
4,680 acres were lavacided by helicopter, 5,600 acres were larvacided by fixed 
wing aircraft, 1 ,893 gallons of insecticide were used to larvacide 1 ,893 acres by 
various means of ground equipment, 2,161.2 gallons of insecticide were used to 
larvacide 32,275 basins. 1,160.5 hours were spent pre-and post-checking these 
many breeding sites. 

Reduction of Adult Mosquitoes: 

By the use of power mist blowers, atomized particles of insecticide were 
dispersed in noted areas of large mosquito infestations. Contact with this 
insecticidal spray by the mosquito while in flight or as it rests in an area treated 
with this insecticide considerably reduced its numbers. 

In many areas inaccessible by vehicles, a power back pack mist blower was 
used. This accomplishes the same results as the larger machine. 6,107.5 gallons 
of insecticide were applied to approximately 6,107.5 acres by both mounted and 
back pack mist blowers. 



63 



The degree of success in both programs "Reduction of the Source" and 
"Reduction at the Source" can be measured by the steady reduction of the 
needs of adulticiding. This adulticide reduction is now being realized in this 
project. 

Eastern Equine Encephalitis: 

This past season was just one incident of Eastern Equine Encephalitis reported 
to this project. This was a nonconfirmed horse case. This case was not in this 
project. However, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, a mosquito borne virus disease is 
always a threat in this southeastern section of Massachusetts. 

The insecticides used in this project's operation were: 

1. Abate, the main mosquito larvacide, at .031 to .062 pound actual to the 
acre 

2. Baytex (Fenthion) larvacide in storm catchbasins and other high organic or 
brackish waters, at .015 to .062 pounds actual to the acre 

3. Malathion, main mosquito adulticide at 0.2 to 0.5 pounds actual to the acre 

These materials are all registered for mosquito control use in the 
Commonwealth. Their recommendation rates and limits of application are 
abided by implicitly and not often are the maximum recommended limits even 
used. 

The Project wishes to acknowledge all assistance received from the officials 
and departments of the communities it serves and give notice that it shall always 
remain ready with its personnel and equipt to continue to serve these wherever 
and whenever it is called upon. 



1971 REPORT 

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT 

This school year marked a turning point in the life of the South Shore 
Vocational Technical High School. A decade has passed, our bond on the 
building has been fully paid and the school has reached its pupil capacity. 
Therefore, starting September 1971, no pupils out of district will be accepted. 
However, boys already in school will be allowed to complete studies and 
graduate. The district includes Abington, Cohasset, Hanover, Norwell, Rockland 
and Scituate. 

Studies are underway for expansion of school building spaces, addition of new 
technical and vocational departments and co-educational school. 



64 



High School students today are looking for relevance in education so that 
tomorrow when job hunting they wiM have skills and training to offer the 
employer. 

The South Shore Natural Science Center on Jacobs Lane in Norwell 
constructed by the carpentry department has been wired by the electrical 
department. Interior finish and cabinet work is being completed in the school 
carpentry shop. This Roayl Barry Wills Cape Cod styled building offers the 
community recreation with education. Our school is proud to have had such an 
opportunity to serve the youth of the community. 

Another project by the carpentry department is a two story English Tudor 
home being built on Captain Vinal Way in Norwell. 

A new Landis universal grinding machine has been added to the machine shop 
allowing the grinding of internal and external diameters to close tolerances. All 
shops are keeping up to date in materials, processes and instruction so all work 
taught is relevant to todays industrial practices and needs. 

In the academic subjects, emphasis is placed on reading and mathematical 
skills. Remedial work is provided when necessary. A remedial reading instructor 
will be added next year. 

Among the new activities started this year, are a school newspaper and 
opportunities to attend legitmate theater in Boston. 

Health and personal hygiene have been made important in the science field so 
our youth can resist the damaging effects of using drugs, alcohol and tobacco. 
The entire student body is attending a medical self-help program prepared by 
civil defense. Everybody learns mouth to mouth resuscitation using a life size 
manikin. 

In sports, hockey has been added to baseball, soccer and basketball in the 
interscholastic program. An active intramural program in bowling and 
weightlifting is in progress with archery, golf, flycasting and table tennis to be 
introduced later in the season. 

Through the years, the school has had Frederick J. Teed as 
Superintendent-Director. We are proud of his dedication, his accomphshments, 
his respect for the students and faculty and their respect for him. This high 
school like all others is going through a period of restlessness and change but Mr. 
Teed keeps the Vo Tech ship on an even keel. 

Out of a total enrollment of 341 boys, 313 are from the six town district and 
28 are from non-district towns. As usual, Cohasset is on the bottom of the totem 
pole with but 12 students attending. 

65 



We are proud of our two Cohasset boys, Allen C. Lehr of N. Main St., and 
James R. Towle of So. Main St., who are in the 1971 Graduating Class. 

Presently completing my third term as the Cohasset representative, I regret 
that business matters prohibit my seeking re-election. It has been a most 
interesting and fascinating experience and I hope I have been able to contribute 
a small measure to the success of this fine educational faciHty. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

John A. Geary 
Cohasset Representative

REPORT OF THE COHASSET DRUG EDUCATION COMMITTEE 

(C.D.E.C.) 



In July, 1970, the Selectmen appointed a seven member Drug Education 
Committee to study and to make recommendations for drug abuse education 
and prevention. It was made an official Committee at the March, 1971 Town 
Meeting. 

The Committee talked with principals and teachers of the schools, lawyers, 
clergy, physicians and the Cohasset police. Existence of a definite and increasing 
abuse of drugs in our town was confirmed by interviews with current and 
graduated students of the High School. 

The Cohasset High School student council appointed a committee of 
interested students (Addinon) who met with C.D.E.C. throughout the year. 
Studies were made of drug education and prevention programs in other 
communities. Evaluation of the personnel and programs of three different 



68 



para-professional groups interested in supplying assistance in drug abuse was 
made. Following this survey, the C.D.E.C. and Addinon met with the School 
Committee on two occasions and recommended a peer-counselling program at 
the High School to be developed by Project Reach of Boston. This program was 
approved by the School Committee, immediately implemented by the school 
administration and completed by thirty-five students in an eight week course. 
These students are established under the title of Project TOUCH. 

The second program initiated by the C.D.E.C. was a crisis and informational 
"Hot Line" staffed by Project Turnabout in Hull (Telephone No. 925-4776, 
4777). This has been operating for seven months and given assistance to 336 
Cohasset famihes. 

C.D.E.C. formed from its members T.O.D., Inc. (Turn Off Drugs), a charitable 
non-profit corporation, in December, 1970. This corporation may accept tax 
deductible contributions for programs to combat drug dependency and related 
problems. 

An educational booklet, "Drug abuse: The Chemical Cop-Out" donated by 
Blue Shield, was mailed to the homes of Cohasset. Enclosed were reports of 
C.D.E.C, Addinon (Student Council Committee), and TOUCH (Trained Peer 
Counseling group for students). Contributions for T.O.D., Inc. were also 
solicited. 

C.D.E.C. and Addinon held two open meetings at the High School. At the 
second meeting, a program was offered for adult education and counselling in 
drug abuse. This program was to be carried out by Project reach of Boston. This 
program has resulted in an active, well-informed group of adults, called 
SUPPORT, working in our town, assisting those involved in drugs as well as their 
famihes. 

During the summer vacation, assistance was given by C.D.E.C, to a teenage 
counselling and informational center operated by Project TOUCH. This "Barn" 
was donated by Bob Fesler, Jr. At the end of the summer, two young adults 
were hired by Project TOUCH to assist in their work. Their employment was 
continued by SUPPORT in September. 

The Hot Line and the mailing of the booklet was funded by the town. All 
other expenses have been supported by private donations and the generous 
support of the churches of Cohasset. 

During the past several months it appears that drug abuse is becoming an 
accepted fact of life. We must reverse this situation. It is important that the 



69 



community at all ages unite and give support to our youth so that their future 

will not be ruined.

REPORT OF THE MOTH SUPERINTENDENT 

The new Mist Blower acquired in April was put to immediate use. Spraying 
was carried out almost constantly from April thru September. Becuase of this 
Elm Leaf Beetles and Oak Leaf Skeletonizers were practically wiped out and 
with this new equipment it promises to keep all our trees in good condition. 

DUTCH ELM DISEASE 

Using a special preventative spray we were able to keep this disease under 
control this year. Anyone who notices rapid wilting or yellowing of Elm trees in 
the mid-summer should call the Moth Superintendent. 

POISON IVY 

This also was well controlled this year and wherever this is visible from the 
street along with ragweed it should be reported so that it can be kept under 
contrbl in the future.

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and 
Citizens of Cohasset: 

During the year a total of one hundred and eighty nine (189) clam permits 
were issued and about fifty (50) bushels of clams were dug from our flats in 
Little Harbor. 

At the request of the Board of Selectmen a survey of our Little Harbor clam 
flats was taken on July 28, 1971 by Shellfish Biologist Arnold Carr of the 
Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources. 



70 



In his report of August 6, 1971, based on samples taken, Mr. Carr states that 
there is only one legal clam and 47 seed clams per square foot. Based on these 
findings, the Board of Selectmen closed the clam flats on August 18, 1971. 

Based on the report of the Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources, I 
feel that the closing of the clam flats in Little Harbor should continue for at 
least two years. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ellery C.S. Sidney 
Shellfish Constable 



1971 REPORT OF THE COUNCIL ON AGING 

The Cohasset Council on Aging meets the second Monday of each month in 
the living room of the Unitarian Parish House. Council meetings are concerned 
with the planning and coordination of services for the elderly citizens of our 
community. 

A monthly newsletter, "Senior Vista" which contains information on social, 
educational and recreational programs for senior citizens is published by the 
Council and mailed to any resident of the town desiring to receive it. Presently 
the mailing list includes 210 addresses. 

The Council also provides subsidies for activities of the 60-Plus Club and 
sponsors a drop-in center at the Unitarian Parish House Wednesday and Friday 
afternoons. 

The Council carried on a continuing investigation of the problems of our 
older citizens with regard to health care, housing, employment, transportation, 
education and recreation, and seeks to find ways to provide assistance either 
through existing agencies or by creating new programs where the need exists.

TOWN OF COHASSET 
GOVERNMENT ISLAND STUDY COMMITTEE 



We are pleased to present herewith the report of the Government Island 
Study Committee for the year 1971. 

As in the years past more people are getting to know and to use Government 
Island in larger numbers. The parking problem has been great in the past years, 
but the parking problem became so acute this past season that the Committee, 
after conducting surveys of the cars and trucks, petitioned the Selectmen to 
impose parking restrictions. The restrictions include parking for Cohasset 
Residents only, and suggesting the use of Sandy Beach Stickers as a means of 
identifying Cohasset Residents. 

In mid-August a study plan was presented to the Selectmen which showed a 
minimum amount of work necessary to upgrade the driveways and parking area 
around the Town Dock and Entrance Areas. It was thought that the work shown 
could be accomplished by the use of employees of Town Departments during 
slack periods. Unfortunately nothing has been done because of lack of funding. 

In order to expedite the completion of the work the Committee requests that 
the following sums of money be included in the Town Budget for 1971. 

1. The sum of $2,000.00 be appropriated for use of the Committee for 
finishing, grading and black-topping of driveways and parking areas; 

2. The sum of $1,000.00 be appropriated for use of the Committee for clearing 
and grubbing; 

3. The sum of $1,000.00 be appropriated for use of the Committee to engage 
engineers to design a new and more adequate parking area; 

4. The sum of $100.00 be appropriated for use of the Committee for purchase 
of stationery and other office expenses. 

We wish to thank the members of the Cohasset Boy Scouts for their work in 
picking up trash and refuse. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Gerard J. Stanton, Chairman 
Government Island Study Committee

REPORT OF THE VETERANS MEMORIAL COMMITTEE 

The Veterans Memorial Committee during the past year has watched over the 
Veterans Memorial and Memorial Park in general. The committee has been 
successful in its efforts to keep the memorial a "Show Place", paying tribute to 
Cohasset Veterans. Routine maintenance has been handled by the Tree and Park 
Department, very efficiently. Annual Plantings were donated by the Garden 
Club this year, and it is hoped the town will benifit their generosity in 1972. 

The committee has been most successful in obtaining the co-operation and 
resources of the various town departments and committee members to 
accomplish various chores relating to the memorial, at no expense to the tax 
payer. It is the intent of the committee to continue to operate in this manner. 

Vandalism has been the biggest problem encountered by the committee, thievery 
of the Flags has been the most popular. The committee has reported no less than 
six stolen flags to police headquarters. The PoUce have been most co-operative 
and efficient in handling the matter. On two occasions they recovered stolen 
flags. The committee has been able to replace the flags from an inventory 
purchased in 1970, with the original $6,500.00 funding. The committee has 
requested that the Selectmen carry the amount of $150.00 in the 1972 budget 
for use to purchase flags and Sundries for the memorial. The funds to be used at 
the recommendation of the Veterans Memorial Committee. 

This Chairman would like to take this opportunity to thank each committee 
member. Town Official, Department Head, and Town employees as well as the 
numerous private citizens who were so co-operative in the many committee 
endeavors during the past year. 

It is recommended that the Veterans Memorial Committee be continued 
indefinitely. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Glenn A. Pratt, 

Chairman 

Veterans Memorial Committee 



REPORT OF THE WIRE DEPARTMENT 

TO THE HONORABLE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

The following is the annual report of the wire department for the year 1971, 



73 



FIRE ALARM 

All fire alarm boxes were tested for proper operation. Eight new alarm 
movements were installed this past fall to replace the old interfering type. 
Overhead wire, crossarms, and hardware were replaced where needed. 

TRAFFIC SIGNALS 

All traffic lights were overhauled and tested. New lights were installed at the 
high school and the Deerhill School. 

A pair of flashing yellow lights were installed at Collins corner, where 
numerous accidents happened in the past. 

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS AND REPAIRS 

Repairs and new work to town-owned buildings and properties were done by 
this department. 

WIRE INSPECTION 

All work done by electrical contractors was inspected, and fees for this work 
were filed with the Town Accountant and Treasurer. 

I wish to express my thanks to the honorable Board of Selectmen, all Town 
Officials, and to the men who worked with me. 

Respectfully yours, 

Edward Malley 
Superintendent of Wires 



REPORT OF THE SCHOOL FACILITIES COMMITTEE FOR 1971 

This committee's effort has been devoted entirely to the space problem at the 
elementary school level. 

The Extended School Year Study, which was sponsored in cooperation with 
the School Committee, has been completed and an extensive report was 
prepared. A summary of this report will be finished by the Extended School 
Year Study Committee early in 1972. 

At the 1971 March Town Meeting $2,000 was authorized in order for the 
School Facilities Committee to retain an architect to study possible renovations 
and modifications to the Deer Hill School and the Joseph Osgood School as one 
possible solution to the lack of adequate facilities. 



74 



The committee interviewed representatives from approximately fifteen firms 
before selecting Hill Miller Friedlaender Hollander, Inc., Architects and 
Educational Planners of Cambridge, Ma. to undertake the study. 

Mr. Stephen Friedlaender spent many hours interviewing Department Heads, 
Staff, Specialists, and members of the Administration in addition to investigating 
the buildings themselves. He discussed a number of architectural possibiHties 
with the committee before the final report was submitted in October. This 
report contained two alternate solutions and was made public at a School 
Committee meeting on December 6, 1971. 

Members of the committee have also investigated the use of relocatable or 
pre-engineered construction. They have visited schools using this type of 
construction and have obtained prices from several firms in this field. 

The committee has met jointly with the School Committee to try to decide 
the relative priorities of needs facing the elementary schools. The committee 
anticipates that joint consideration of these needs and the various possible 
solutions which the School Committee will lead to a recommended plan of 
action for the March Town Meeting.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

During 1971 the Planning Board began a program directed toward the 
development of a new landuse Master Plan for the Town of Cohasset. The 
Planning Board reviewed the Allen Benjamen Report, a Master Plan completed 
under 701 Funding in 1960, and the Hidell Associates Report on Open Space, 
Conservation and Recreation completed in 1970 under the direction of the 
Conservation Commission. This was an attempt to discern what suggestions and 
proposals of each report were still appropriate (The Benjamin Report being 
almost 12 years old) and relevant to the Town's present and projected situation. 



75 



Each member of the Planning Board reviewed particular sections of the 
Benjamin and Hidell reports and submitted recommendations to the Planning 
Board. These recommendations are being compiled into a report of the Planning 
Board to be distributed to other Town agencies. 

The Planning Board has directed considerable attention to the development 
of a Cluster Zoning By-Law and a new proposal for multi-family housing. The 
Planning Board intends to submit the "Cluster Zoning By-Law" to the Town 
Meeting in March of 1972, however further work is necessary on the 
Multi-Family Housing By-Law* and thus at the time of the writing of this 
report, it is doubtful as to whether the Planning Board will be able to submit this 
particular By-Law this March at the Town Meeting. The Planning Board has also 
completed a study of the former Perm Central railroad right-of-way in order to 
make a recommendation to the town for use of the right-of-way and acquisition. 

The Planning Board was faced with a broad spectrum of development 
problems during 1971. A number of developers did not comply with Covenants 
which they held with the Board and as a result considerable time was spent 
tracking them down and seeking complience. There was only one major 
subdivision submitted to the Planning Board during 1971, this proposed 
development was rejected by the Board. The Planning Board assisted the Zoning 
Board of Appeals in three major development proposals, the Carzis Motel 
project, the Cohasset Swim and Recreation Trust proposal and the Black Rock 
High-Rise Apartment proposal. 

It is the general feeling the members of the Planning Board that pressure from 
land development is increasing substantially, not only from the standpoint of 
land consumption and resource base depletion but also from the nature of 
legislation being passed by legislators. The sum total of this legislation seems to 
be directed at forcing Towns to act in light of social needs for housing on their 
own or removing such choice of action from the towns and having state agencies 
become the town planning agencies in certain respects. The Planning Board of 
Cohasset is very cognizant of these pressures and intends to maintain a 
continued program for updating and further developing good planning practices 
through zoning regulations and master landuse program. 

*Note on apartment zoning: 

The water and sewerage problems facing the Town of Cohasset, seriously 
limits any real consideration of apartment construction at this time. The 
Planning Board thinks however, that the Town should make a decision 
concerning multi-family housing. It is in this light that the Planning Board 
will offer its proposed multi-family zoning by-law. Part of the Planning 
Board's responsibihty is to maintain an atmosphere in which development 
will not be detrimental to the general welfare of the community, this 
however does not preclude the future development of the water supply and 



76 



sewage treatment facilities wherein these developments could well support 
larger populations and housing developments.

REPORT OF THE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

Most of the efforts of the Conservation Commission in 1971 have been aimed at 
carrying out the recommendations of the new "Comprehensive Plan for 
Conservation, Open Space and Recreation in Cohasset" commonly known as the 
Hidell Report. These recommendations are so many and diverse that only the 
most important could be implemented in the first year. Copies of the report are 
on file in the Selectmen's Office and the Library. The Report has been updated 
and corrected this year. 

One of the key recommendations of the Hidell Report is the acquisition of the 
Penn Central Railroad right-of-way. The Selectmen are working on this at 
present. A major decision requiring much study is whether to purchase it with 
state conservation self-help funds and restrict its use, or whether to purchase it 
outright for unrestricted use by the town. The Planning Board is studying the 
matter and will have a recommendation for the March Town meeting. 

At the March, 1971 town meeting. Article 23, jointly sponsored by the 
Conservation Commission and the Water Department, set up an area around 
Aaron River and Lily Pond which would be protected from further development 
as a safeguard to the town water supply. With ever increasing demands on our 
water supply and on developable land, we believe that this section of the Zoning 
By-Law will prove of great value in the future. 

Under the Coastal Wetlands Act, the State may protect such wetlands from 
further development. We have applied to the State Department of Natural 
Resources for such protection for the marshes around the Gulf and around Little 
Harbor. The engineering work which must precede such a move has been done 
and our application is pending action by the Department. A public hearing is the 
next step. We hope that this will take place early next year. 

Since the death of Howard Bates, the Tree Department has been overworked. 
Believing that a planned program of tree case would improve its effectiveness, we 



77 



engage Mr. Kenneth Schult to make a complete survey of town trees, with 
recommendations for their case and estimates of its cost. We also asked Mr. 
Schult for recommendations on the care of the shrub and turf areas of town 
parks, recreation areas and school grounds. His first six-month report, on the 
trees, indicated some 500 town trees in need of approximately $28,000 of care. 
We expect that Mr. Schult's services will be of great help to the town in planning 
the preservation of these natural resources, our trees and parks. 

At our March Meeting, John Hubbard resigned as chairman and John Bryant was 
elected to take his place. Fortunately for the town, Mr. Hubbard has been no 
less active. With great regret the resignations of two of the founding members of 
the Commission were accepted. Dr. Edward Woods and Mr. George Benedict. 
Their places have been filled by former Associate Members Joseph Becker and 
Mrs. George Rabstejnek. 

Looking ahead to 1 972 we see out duties enlarged. An amendment to the Hatch 
Act puts the responsibiUty for conducting hearings on the Conservation 
Commission. We would remind developers that they must file by certified mail 
not less than thirty days prior to filling wetland. 

In 1972, we hope to implement further recommendations of the Hidell report. 
We also foresee the likelihood of acquiring desirable land, as citizens attempt to 
reduce their tax furden following revaluation, through donations of land or 
conservation easements.

REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 

Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for the year 
ending December 31, 1971. 

The work performed by the men of the Highway Department does not vary 
from year to year. The projects and maintenance work remain the same. 

The Spring work started with the sweeping of the streets, painting of traffic 
lines, cleaning catch basins, repairing and painting street signs and the replacing 
of concrete fence posts. A section of Beechwood Street and Todd road was 
drained and resurfaced. Seventeen Basins were installed and 1284' of 12" pipe 
laid, and two new Culverts put in. 

Sections of Pond and King Street were sealed with hquid asphalt. 

In a period of sixteen years the Department has installed 415 standard Catch 
basins, laid 42,035' of drain pipe and resurfaced 31Vi miles of roads and private 
ways. 

Chapter 90 Construction and Maintenance funds were applied for this year. 
The Construction funds will be used on Elm Street and the Maintenance funds 
on Streets approved by the State for such aid. 

This year the maintenance funds were used to paint Cunningham's Bridge, 
resurface a section of Ripley Road, and install curbing on South Main Street. 

This coming year the drainage System on Redgate Lane should be replaced 
and the road resurfaced. The drainage system is forty years old. 

The condition as the end of Forest Avenue and Jerusalem Road will be 
considered. The State will be asked to help solve the problem. 

This is the third year that the Highway Department has not asked for monies 
under special Highway articles other than Chapter 90 work. 

The Department has six men and good equipment. 

I thank the men of the Department, Town Officials, and citizens who have 
helped me during the year. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Louis C. Baily, Jr. 
Highway Surveyor

REPORT OF THE RECREATION COMMISSION 

The Recreation Commission has now completed its fifteenth year of 
operation. On the third Wednesday of each month the five commissioners, Mr. 
Gowen the Program Director and Richard Sawyer the teenage representative 
meet at eight P.M. at the Community Center. These meetings are open to the 
public. 

Mr. Paul Mema, who had been the program director, was appointed in 
October to fill the vacancy on the board due to the resignation of Mr. Robert 
Pennington. Mr. Ernest Gowan who came to use from Duxbury's Recreation 
Program was appointed program director. 

The summer program was set up a Uttle differently this year with morning 
activity at Barnes Field and afternoons at Beechwood Ball Field. In conjunction 
with the Hingham Recreation Department, the Hull Street playground was in 
operation all day. Children from ages five through twelve attended these 
programs which consisted of: sporting events, gymnastics, arts and crafts, 
storytime and trips to such places as South Shore Musical Circus Children's 
Shows. Rainy day activities were held at Deer Hill School. Attendance at this 
cost free program was up from previous years. 

With completion of the lighting of Osgood's basketball court, a night program 
was set up in an effort to attract the teenagers of the town. Credit should be 
given to the young people who ran this basketball program and to the large 
number of young people who attended. A special vote of thanks to the Wire 
Department for installing the floodlights. 

A new program for the women of the town was the well-attended exercise 
classes. These classes were held in the high school gym on Wednesday nights. We 
hope to be able to run this program again next year. 

Meetings were held with the Tree and Park Department which has taken over 
the duty of the field maintenance, a duty formerly held by this conmiission. 
These meetings concerned the plans to construct a new practice field which has 
been started by this commission and the re-surfacing of Miliken Football Field. 
We hope this work will be completed in seventy-two. 

The skating pond on Cushing Road was improved this year and we hope to do 
likewise to the one on Beechwood Street next year. These ponds are lighted and 
are well-used by the townspeople. 

We would like to thank the Cohasset Jaycees who painted the stands at 
Beechwood Ball Park. Mr. Nelson Megna thd the School Department has been 
most co-operative in allowing us the use of various facilities for programs and has 



80 



encouraged our expansion. To them we extend our thanks and appreciation. 
Only by continued working together, department with department, organization 
and group with counterpart, can the town fulfill the needs of all persons with 
the least amount of duplication.

REPORT OF THE HARBOR MASTER 

I hereby submit the annual report of the Harbor Department for the year 1971. 
There were several areas of improvement to aid the boating pubUc; namely, the 
adding of two new flood lights, one at the Yacht Club and one at Government 
Island. These lights are helping tremendously in keeping vandalism and theft at a 
minimum. The float known as the Fisherman's Float, next to Fieldbrook, was 
dredged out to a six foot depth so that boats would not ground out at low tide. 

It was initiated on a small scale to moor boats bow and stern in the upper 
cove area by Kimball's on a trial basis. This seemed to work out very satisfactorily 
and it is intended that we pursue this on a larger scale in the coming year in the 
creek area as well as at the cove. 

There are still over 200 applications on a waiting Hst for a mooring in the 
harbor. Persons are warned not to purchase a boat without going through the 
proper channels of procedure pertaining to the harbor rules and regulations so 
they save themselves a lot of aggrevation as well as inconvenience to other 
pertential boat owners. 

Also, this fall the Harbor Department received a donation of a 24 foot, 
Inboard-Outboard, to be used for Search and Rescue and Harbor Patrol. This gift 
has saved the town a good deal of money and should add to the efficiency of the 
department. 

It is planned for 1972 to add two new floats to create more docking faciHties 
for the loading and unloading of boats and more float tie-up space for tenders. 
Also it is planned to drill and mark all ledge out-crop in several areas of the 
harbor. We intend, in accordance with our survey of the walls around the harbor, 
to set up a long range plan of repairing according to priority. 



81 



In closing, may I say that it is the intent of the department to keep a constant 
eye out for improvement of the harbor and to assist the boating public as 
efficiently as can be expected for the best interest of all concerned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry H. Ritter 
Harbormaster 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

This year the Board of Selectmen alternated their regular weekly meetings 
morning and nights, so as to be more available to those who wished to attend 
and discuss their problems with the Board, In addition, numerous special 
meetings and hearings have been held from time to time. 

This year was our first experience as Tree and Park Commissioners, as voted 
by Article 29 of the 1970 Town Meeting. By this Article, the Board of 
Selectmen were instructed to petition the General Court for the passage of a 
special law for the elimination of the Superintendent of Insect Pest Control and 
the transferring of his duties to a Superintendent of Trees and Parks. 

This year we were not able to appoint such a person because of lack of funds. 
Because of this, the Board of Selectmen feel they have not been able to 
appoint such a person because of lack of funds. Becuase of this, the Board of 
Selectmen feel they have not been able to carry out the intent of this Article, as 
we have not been able to coordinate the work of the Tree and Park Department 
under a single head in order to achieve the most efficient operation of the 
Department. This year we are asking for the necessary funds to employ a 
Superintendent to carry out this function. 

It is the feeling of the Board of Selectmen that ways must be found to 
increase the revenue of the Town by a wider tax base so as to stabilize the tax 
rate. 

The Town was greatly saddened by the death of our esteemed Town 
Treasurer, David Truesdell, who served the Town so faithfully. 

We wish to thank all of the various committees and departments for their 
cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur L. Clark, Chairman 

Henry W. Ainshe, Jr.

REPORT OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT 



I herewith submit the annual report of the Fire Department for the year 
ending December 31, 1971. 

In the year 1971 the Fire Department responded to 366 fires or emergency 
calls. Of this 1 24 were Bell Alarms and the remaining 242 were Still Alarms. 

A summary of these emergencies is as follows. 

Buildings and Structures 28 

Grass, brush and dumps 63 

Aid to persons, first aid, resuscitation 86 

Investigations of smoke, gas and other hazardous conditions 49 

Mutual Aid to Scituate 3 

Mutual Aid to Hull 18 

Mutual Aid to Hingham 10 

Electrical fires 8 

Flammable Hquids and gases 6 

Vehicles, boats and accidents 26 

Needless and accidental calls 15 

False alarms and bomb scares 49 

Miscellaneous 5 

The number of false alarms (44) and bomb scares in Public buildings (5) is up 
greatly over any past year. This should be a major concern to every citizen . . 
not only because of the expense involved but the resulting delay in men and 
equipment reaching the scene of a true emergency. Bomb scares in pubHc 
buildings require many man hours to make even a cursory inspection, this results 
in a delay once more in responding to an emergency. 

The cooperation of all citizens is required if apprehension of the culprits is 
going to be made. Fire alarm boxes on the pubhc ways are for notification of a 
fire or emergency and should be used for this purpose only. Citizens seeing any 
one acting suspiciously around one of these boxes should notify the Fire or 
Police Department immediately . . .giving a complete description of what has 
been witnessed. 

As stated in last years annual report the "Regulations for the Control of Air 
Pollution in Metropolitan Boston Air Pollution Control District" prohibit aH 
outside burning ... the burning of leaves, grass, brush and incinerators is 
prohibited, burning at the Town dump is also prohibited. While most of the 
citizens have cooperated in observance of these regulations there are still some 
who feel they are exempt, appropriate action will be taken in future cases of 
non-compliance. 

83 



The apparatus and equipment of the department is in good condition, keeping 
in mind that the ages vary from 10 to 24 years.

Extensive repairs made to the front end and steering of Engine 3. While this is 
the oldest (21) pumping engine of the department it is intended to replace 
Engine 4 (18) this year. The reason for not replacing the oldest unit is that the 
station housing Engine 3 will not accommodate a vehicle any larger than the 
present one. A modern pumping engine physically will not fit inside the 
building. 

The buildings at North Cohasset and Beechwood are no longer suitable for fire 
department service. They are to small for present day apparatus, the 
accommodations for the men are poor and most important they are poorly 
located to provide maximum service to the Town. Combining of these two 
companies into one modern station would result in better response to the entire 
community and a more efficient operation, as well as allow for future 
replacement of the existing apparatus. 

In conclusion, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the 
citizens of Cohasset, the Honorable Board of Selectmen, and the heads and 
members of all Town Departments for their fine cooperation and assistance. 

I would be remiss if I did not thank each and every man of the Fire 
Department for his fine cooperation, assistance and performance of duty. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles Piepenbrink 

Chief of Fire Department 

and Forest Warden

REPORT OF THE CAPITAL BUDGET COMMITTEE 

The Capital Budget Committee is a newly created committee estabUshed by a 
resolution of the Town Meeting of March, 1971. Its purpose is to gather 
information from all Town departments concerning their planned expenditures 
of a capital nature not only for each current year but more significantly for 
future years. By bringing together the planned capital needs of all departnients it 
is hoped that major expenditures can be scheduled in an orderly manner to 
minimize as much as possible abnormal peaks in such outlays. 

The members of the Committee were appointed in the Fall of 1971 and have 
made initial contact with those departments that are most capital intensive. 
During 1 972 the Committee will develop more detail information concerning the 
capital planning of all departments and will prepare a comprehensive schedule of 
these plans for the years 1973 through 1977. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert E. Gibbons, Chairman

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Personnel Committee has met regularly on the second Tuesday of each 
month. We have held additional meetings during the months of May and June 
relative to the contract with the Cohasset Police Association. During the months 
of November and December meetings were held each Monday and Tuesday 
night. The Committee is available to meet with any Town employee and other 
interested citizens upon request. 

The Personnel Committee was again appointed by the Selectmen to be the 
Bargaining Agent for the Town. The Committee is authorized to bargain with 
any and all employees who are organized to bargain for wages and working 
conditions under the rules and regulations of the Commonwealth. The early 
months of this year were spent in negotiations with the Cohasset Police 
Association. The negotiations were completed in June and the contract was 
signed by both parties in August. The contract runs through December 31, 1972. 

Cohasset continues to rank among Towns of its size and with surrounding 
communities in most phases of employee compensation. The only area in which 
we do not measure up is in the number of hours worked weekly by our 
firefighters. Most other Towns in the area are working a 42 hour week. Cohasset 
firefighters work a 56 hour week and have been on that schedule since 1956. 
The Personnel Committee is recommending the adoption of a three year 
"package" to bring our firefighters in line with surrounding Towns. The package 
calls for a reduction in hours over three years with the addition of two men each 
of three years to implement this plan. 

Our recommendation for a cost of living increase is based in part on the 
guidelines imposed by the Federal Wage and Price Board and the cost of living 
rise in the Boston area in the Past Year. Our recommendations are in line with 
those of surrounding Towns. 

Several members' terms expired at the beginning of the year and during the 
summer our Chairman resigned for personal reasons. As a result, only one of the 
present members served on last years committee. We want to thank those who 
have served so admirably in the past and were so willing to come to our aid this 
year. I also wish to thank the present members who have so freely of their time 
in behalf of the employees of the Town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John M. MacNeill, Chairman

Report of the Committee to Survey the Administrative 
Functions of the Various Town Offices, Boards, and Departments 

Over the past year this committee has seriously considered its past record of 
performance, and its future potential for providing the benefits to the Town 
perceived under its founding charter. The initial committee formed undertook 
an extensive survey and study of the Town administrative functions and 
reported their findings and recommendations to the next ensuing Town Meeting 
with articles for Town acceptance. None of these recommendations were 
enacted and the committee as then constituted with the exception of one 
member asked to be excused. A new committee composed largely of the current 
members was appointed to continue. Since that time three recommendations of 
this committee have been presented to, and adopted by the Town. This is a 
pitiful record. This committee is now in its fourth year of existence and finds 
itself largely unable to realize its purpose of recommending significant ways in 
which economies or improved efficiencies in Town administration could be 
effected. The nature of our inability to suggest appropriate actions for the Town 
to take is due largely to the existing legal structure of the present Town 
organization. 

With the passage by the General Court of the Home Rule Constitutional 
Amendment in 1966 which authorizes cities and towns to formulate 
individuaUzed governing charters, a unique opportunity has been afforded to 
Cohasset. For the first time Cohasset has the opportunity to implement a major 
revamping of its organizational structure to be more responsible, efficient, and 
effective to its own individual needs. 

This does not mean to imply that the Town administrative structure as 
presently constituted is taking advantage of its awkward character to perpetuate 
inefficiencies or expensive overlapping structure. To the contraty, the Town is 
extremely fortunate in having the services of the dedicated and committed town 
employees that it has, who are continually concerned to provide the best for the 
least. 

It does mean to imply, however, that our committee feels that only through 
exercising the opportunity afforded by the constitutional amendment can 
Cohasset reaUze the goal that our committee was constituted to find. 

A further impetus for the election of a charter commission is contained in 
Section 12, Chapter 43B of the General Laws which required that by 1976 each 
Town must have a pubUshed charter. This charter must necessarily be one of two 
things: - either a compilation of all the statutes under which the Town is now 
governed, or a wholly new and custom-fitted charter design expressly for the 
needs and desires of the community it is designed to serve. 



9a 



Failure to act under the provisions of this constitutional amendment could 
well result in the Town being obhged to accept a charter compiled at the last 
moment under less than ideal conditions of review which could well be 
detrimental to the Town's future interest. 

With the above recommendations which are to be presented in the form of a 
resolution at the March Town Meeting your committee feels that its function 
should be incorporated into the deHberation of a specific charter commission to 
be elected under the provisions of the Home Rule Constitutional Amendment; 
and we do therefore ask that this report be considered and accepted as our final 
act, and that our committee be dissolved as having completed its function, 

(Mrs.) Francis E. Charles

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 
1971 

The School Committee is operating with what it beUeves is the mandate of 
the Townspeople to balance the delicate equation of financial responsibility and 
educational excellence. In trying to fulfill that mandate, the Committee has held 
many meetings during the past year as it tried to resolve compUcated educational 
issues. The search for positive solutions to some of our more difficult problems 
continued into 1972. 

In 1971, for the first time in several years, the School Committee was able to 
slow down significantly the rate of increased school costs without disrupting the 
excellence of the school system. In 1969, the Committee asked for an 
appropriation increase of 19% over 1968; in 1970 an increase of 17.9% over 
1969; and in 1971, an appropriation increase of only 8.3% over 1970. The 
School Committee hopes that in 1972 it can continue to hold increased costs to 
a minimum though this will not be easy. Educators are becoming more 
specilized, parents want more individualized services for their children, and the 
evolutionary process of education together with our society's desire for 
something new and innovative all add up to costs potentially spiraling upward. 

The School system has experimented with many new approaches to 
education such as Differential Staffing in the elementary schools which we hope 
will give students a better learning situation immediately, and will produce, 
eventually, a real long run financial savings to the town. 



91 



The Osgood and Deerhill Schools are probably going to need some renovation 
to provide more open space if the Differential teaching concept is to succeed. 
Also after two years, the kindergarten will be leaving the Unitarian Parish House 
and returning to the elementary school. With these changes in mind, the School 
Facilities Committee has been studying the developing physical space problems 
of the elementary schools and will make a presentation to the town in early 
1972. 



The cost of retaining first rate teaching personnel in the School System 
continued to be expensive. With the individualized approach to education that 
has been estabhshed in the Cohasset system, there is an ever increasing call on 
the School Committee to hire more specialists to deal with childrens' problems 
that are derived from the complexities of our society. Far more is expected of 
the Schools than ever before. The Committee has the unhappy task of balancing 
those individual needs against what the town can afford. Some of the problem 
areas are Health and Drug Education, learning disabihty problems, speech 
therapy, and the list goes on and on. These are all difficult problem areas 
without simple solutions. Unfortunately, schools and teachers are limited in 
what they can do for a child; and they can not replace parents. 

Teacher negotiations were carried on all through the past year and a contract 
was not agreed upon until September 1st. 

A key point negotiated in the new contract makes it mandatory that a 
teacher actually obtain an advanced degree in a field of study approved by the 
School Committee to move from one salary column to the next higher one. To 
encourage our teachers' professional development and at the same time improve 
Cohasset's educational system, the School Committee agreed to pay tuition in 
an amount not exceeding $150 per approved course for up to two successfully 
completed courses during any one year. 

The whole area of teacher negotiations has become difficult and time 
consuming. The entire School Committee negotiated with the Teachers 
Association during this past year. The complexity of the issues makes it 
mandatory and in the Town's best interest for the School Committee to have 
the advice and experience of a professional negotiator for the coming year. As a 
result, one has been retained. 

This Committee is dedicated to a dynamic but commonsense approach to the 
education of Cohassets' Youth. The School System can do well what it is 
equipped for and that is to create an atmosphere for learning and free expression 
that will help childrens' minds develop in a way that they can lead lives that are 
productive to themselves and to our society. Everything else must be secondary! 



92 



Finally, the School Committee is especially appreciative to Reverend Edward 
Atkinson and the First Parish for lending the use of their facilities to the School 
Department during the past two years.

October 1 enrollment figures provide a means for comparing the school 
system's enrollment at a comparable time during any school year, but they do not 
provide an accurate description of the overall enrollment pattern. A more precise 
representation can be obtained by using a statistic called the Average Daily 
Membership (ADM). This is obtained for any given year by adding the aggregate 
number of days of attendance of all students to the aggregate number of days of 
absence of all students and dividing that sum by the total number of days that 
school was in session. The ADM for the two preceding school years are provided 
in Table 3. These figures include both resident and non-resident (METCO) students.

BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS - REPORT 1971 

The Board of Water Commissioners have focused much of their efforts this 
year toward the ultimate construction of the proposed water supply 
augmentation project. Numerous Ineetings with State and Federal Agencies have 
been attended and at this time we believe the project will be ready for 
presentation to the 1972 Annual Town Meeting for voter approval. 

With the continuing growth of the Town, an ever increasing number of 
problems have arisen regarding protection of our water supply and demands on 
the system. These problems were compounded by one of the dryest summers on 
record. With the pond supply deminishing early in the season, restrictions on the 
use of water were imposed for an extended period. A prolonged curtailment is 
reflected, of course, in total gallons distributed and reduction of revenue. 



103 



Building starts were also down with only sixteen (16) new accounts having 
been activated in 1971. Seven of these were previously installed by private 
developers. One new hydrant and approximately 300 feet of 8" main were 
installed by developers. 

Our program of hydrant updating has continued and service replacements as 
necessary. 

Pumping equipment at the Ellms Meadow well was completely re-built, 
sufficiently increasing the yield from this source. 

Much of the department personnel time was expended in a modification 
program at our Treatment Plant. With the installation of a completely new 8" 
transmission line from Lily Pond to the Treatment Plant and the installation of 
activated carbon as a filtering media. These modifications will assure us a 
substantial increase in out-put from this facility, as a temporary supplement to 
the total distribution until a new facility can be put into operation. 

An expression of Thanks is extended by the Board to all Town Officials, 
Department Heads and Committees for their cooperation throughout the year 
and to the Water Department Superintendent and personnel for their continued 
loyal support and untiring efforts.

BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS REPORT OF 1971 

This year brought on a slow but steady increase in wastewater flow to the 
treatment plant through the increase in house connections to the sewerage 
system, although the potential for homes along the system has not been reached 
at the present time. A more formalized permit application for connection to the 
public sewer has been instituted in order to facilitate administrative and 
technical control over the construction of house connections. 

The Commissioners have become more aware of the complexity and problems 
associated with the effective transmission and efficient treatment of the Town's 
wastewaters. It is recognized that the prime responsibility of the Town is to 
assure that the publice health is protected by the proper operation and 
maintenance of the treatment facility and the Sewer Department has attempted 
to instill in the citizenry of Cohasset that the most important aspect of the 
sewerage systeiji is the treatment plant. Department personnel are encouraged to 

104 



participate in operator training courses and waste treatment seminars with the 
Board recognizing that such education will reap benefits for the Town in the 
form of a well operated treatment plant. This has been born out in a recent State 
Division of Water Pollution Control audit of the treatment plant which found it 
to be operating in line with its design expectations. 

As of this report, the Town is in the process of awarding a contract for the 
construction of sanitary sewers for the Cove, Elm Street and Village Business 
District. Federal grants from the Environmental Protection Agency Water 
Quality Office for the eligible portions of this addition to the sewerage system 
have been received which will help defray the construction costs. If the Board 
receives final economic approval from the Town, it is anticipated that the 
construction can begin during the early portion of 1972. 

The Board of Sewer Commissioners wish to take this time to thank those 
Town departments, committees and individuals for keeping the Department 
abreast of their programs which have a bearing on wastewater disposal in the 
Town. In addition, further gratitude is expressed to those individual Town 
employees who provided a much needed technical assistance necessary for the 
conduct of the Sewer Department.

The two-year increase in use of adult materials-expecially nonfiction books 
(up 24%) and periodicals (up 32%)"and the decline in use of children's materials 
reflect a nationwide pattern. Factors in the increase of adult use are rising costs 
of materials and growing interest in a wide range of subjects. The basic factor in 
the decrease of children's use seems to be the increased availability and use of 
school libraries. Some evidence of this reason for change in children's use of the 
pubhc hbrary is offered in the following chart: 

CIRCULATION OF CHILDREN'S MATERIALS, Summer & Fall, 1970 «& 1971

Circulation of children's books was much higher in the summer of 1971 than 
in the summer of 1970, but dropped below 1970 figures when school opened. 



106 



The summer reading program in 1971 unboubtedly accounts for some of the 
increase in summer use of children's books, but it does not account for the 
decHne when school opened. It appears to us that the decHne during the school 
months is related to the improvement of school Hbraries, which we 
wholeheartedly support. 

To describe this trend in children's services is easier than answering some the 
questions it raises. Shall the public Hbrary continue to serve the children as school 
library services increasingly do the job? Would we do a better job of adult 
services in the Hmited space we have if we concentrated on adult services, if the 
public library, as an integral part of the town's library system, were exclusively 
an adult center? One-third of our circulation is to children. But only one-fourth 
of our budget goes to children's services. Should we do more or less for children? 
Or should we concentrate all children's Hbrary services in the schools? 

We continue to consider these question with the school department and hope 
members of the community will give thought to the matter. We will be 
proposing for discussion in the near future some new directions in the 
organization of library services. 

SUMMER READING INCENTIVE PROGRAM 

Eighty-two children participated in the program by submitting reading 
reports on ten or more books during the summer. Reading certificates were given 
to all participants and free paperbacks were given to all participants and free 
paperbacks were given to those who read twenty books. Forty-one children read 
at least twenty books, and twenty-one read forty or more. The gift books and 
materials for the program were paid for by the Friends of the Cohasset Library. 

MEETING ROOM USE 

The Hbrary 's attractive meeting room, built in 1964, was used at least twice a 
week during the year for meetings of groups and organizations, adult classes 
(yoga), adult film programs, story hours and film programs for children, and 
regular monthly meetings of the library trustees and the Friends of the Library. 
We invite increased use of this room for such purposes. The room also houses the 
music books and serves as a quiet study area. 

PUBLIC RELATIONS 

We assume that our basic public relations effort is the service we render. If it's 
good, we hope you tell your friends. When it's not so good, we hope you teH us. 

Our second line of public relations is the entire program of the Friends of the 
Cohasset Library-membership recruitment, programs, exhibits, volunteer work 
in the Hbrary (increased by one-third over last year) and in visits to nursing 



107 



homes, and gifts ($500 for outstanding books). To have so many members of the 
community actively involved in their library makes a better library and spreads 
the word to an ever wider number of citizens. 

We make other efforts to keep the community informed. Newspaper items on 
acquisitions, programs, exhibits, and policies have appeared regularly once or 
twice a month. A wide range of free booklists and pamphlets have been 
distributed in the library and local stores--30 different items, 4,600 pieces-many 
of which are high quality materials supplied free by the Eastern Regional Library 
System. 

I am always happy to talk with any individual or group, and the monthly 
meetings of the Board of Library Trustees are open and the public welcome.

In the seventies, the ecological decade, there is much concern for the physical 
environment, for our social environment and for our human well-being. The 



108 



largest item in our budget is the operation of the Town's disposal area. Much of 
the material blithely discarded each day contains valuable material, which if 
reused, would help alleviate our solid waste problems but would also help 
conserve our dwindling disposal area. Recycling is playing an increasing role in 
the conservation of space. With our health agent and the help of community 
organizations every avenue of recycling is being exploited. Currently, recycling 
of metal, paper, and bottles has met with the greatest success. Tires, plastics, 
trees, brush, stumps and material from demolition of buildings continue to fill 
the area. Successfully facing the challenge of recycling and conserving our 
disposal area will demand the cooperative efforts of all residents.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TREE AND PARK COMMISSIONERS 

During the year the pubHc shade trees ahve been given constant care. 
Deadwood has been removed and pruning carried out so that these trees are in 
excellent condition. There are many hundreds of shade trees lining our Cohasset 
Streets. 

Underbrush was cut back and mowing carried out along the roadside 
throughout the Town. Approximately forty Elm Trees and Twenty Maple Trees 
had to be removed throughout the Town and a number of new trees were 
planted in various sections. 

The Town has a nursery where we have approximately 50 trees at the present 
time, these trees will be planted throughout the town starting in early spring. 

Using a special preventive spray we were able to keep this disease under con- 
trol this year. Anyone who notices rapid wilting or yellowing of Elm trees in the 
mid-summer should call the Moth Superintendent. 

Our experience this past year as Tre.e and Park Commissioners has shown us 
a very definite need for a full-time working superintendent. A more efficient 
department has been our goal and a full-time working superintendent is a neces- 
sity for this purpose.

REPORT OF THE MOTH SUPERINTENDENT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen 
and Citizens of Cohasset: 

The new Mist Blower acquired in April was put to immediate use. Spraying 
was carried out almost constantly from April thru September. Because of this, 
Elm Leaf Beetles and Oak Leaf Skeletonizers were practically wiped out and 
with this new equipment it promises to keep our trees in good condition. 

The Poison Ivy was well controlled this year and wherever this is visible from 
the street, along with ragweed, it should be reported so that it can be kept under 
control in the future.

Lawrence Figueiredo
